Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: Harry grew up in Salida and the first time he took me to visit, I was enchanted. Some of his fondest memories are of hiking back into the mountain lakes and creeks to fish and getting to skii Monarch. I grew up in the hot, humid south and love the cooler temperatures with low humidity and eagerly look forward to retirement in Chaffee County. When we are on our way to the cabin and we see the snow capped mountains, we know we're nearly home.

Why the Owner Chose Monarch:
We bought Forest Creek in 2010 and it was love at first sight. The natural setting is beautiful with the river, the majestic cliffs and the forest. In the fall, the beauty of the fall color is awe inspiring and the sound of the river and waterfall are soothing to the ears year round. From the time you enter the cabin you feel at peace, knowing this is a place where you can unwind and remove yourself from the stresses of life. The cabin has lovely views from every window porch and balcony.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Forest Creek is your great escape in any season! For the winter guest.. Skiing Monarch is #1, with all natural powder.. Or you can have a great time sledding, snow shoeing, skiing, or snowmobiling . For warmer seasons, the list of activities is unlimited: mountain biking, horseback riding, 4 WD exploring, Zip-treking, searching through galleries, antique stores or fabulous yarn shops. Evening fun in Salida can be catching live music in taverns or coffee houses or The Steam Plant.
